    Since it is new it is still under warranty and I would just take it back and have the shop check it over. One or more cables inside might have come loose during the ride in your "trunk" (as we say in the States) but unless you are familiar with the insides of PCs you could void the warranty poking around in there.

    first of all, check the video cable connections, second as stated soemthing in the case may of came loose druing the ride home in the boot aka trunk < proper USA term. if its under waranty have the store or shop check it over. then on the ride home carefully wrap the tower aka pc in a blanket to keep its safe.
